I've never been a big runner but I've decided to get into it properly with my long term (very long term) goal to run a marathon. I'm starting from Couch 2 5k and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice in general for how to keep focused on my running.
I'm an overweight 25 year old trying to lose weight and get healthy. Already I'm looking for excuses to give up such as period cramps, headache, long day in work etc. I want to run 5k enough without worrying I can't do it so I can start training for a 10k.
Any advice/support etc. would be great. Thanks!
